“ Excellent guide ”

My teenage son and I spent 1.5 days with Katsuko in Kyoto - we visited Nishiki market, Nara, and my son got her to bring us to specific places he wanted to shop. Katsuko is very kind, patient and incredibly helpful. She shared insights into Kyoto and life in Japan. She is very professional and adjusted our schedule on the fly to suit our energy levels and immediate needs. Be sure to book her in advance for Kyoto. Katsuko: thank you so much for your help with our visit to Kyoto. We will see you again for all the other sights in Kyoto that we didn’t have time for!

Katsuko:

Dear Ovidia, Thank you very much for your kind review. It was so lovely meeting you and your son, and it was such a pleasure for me to guide you and show you around Kyoto. I really hope to see you again in the near future. Please take care. Warmest regards, Katsuko Ozaki
